Scarecrow

Scarecrow

I stand alone
A scarecrow with my thoughts
A pocket full of straw
To feed the tiny dreams
Of my friends
Their silence awoke with spring
Left me gazing at twilight
And praying for other things.
Tell me
Why do I wait?
Why do I wait for you?
Your face brings me such warmth.
Cast between these furrows
I am king
But I humble in your dawn
I hold on to your sunlight
For as long as your light will hold
Or until your light is played out
Or until we both grow old.

All your poems go to my favorites, but this one is the one that completely captured me.

Now, I see.

Beautiful as all your work is John.

Beautiful write

Your face brings me such warmth.

Cast between these furrows

I am king

But I humble in your dawn

I hold on to your sunlight

For as long as your light will hold

Or until your light is played out

Or until we both grow old.

 

Excellent

This is utterly beautiful.  We all feel like that sometimes.  Representing the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz? 
Powerful piece.

undoubtably brilliant john, never would think of a scarecrow this way, the loner of the field, the fear amongst the crows, i always thought it never works, a creation amongst the best by a wise powerful mind such as yours,
great write

Mighty good John, mighty good.

Tell me

Why do I wait?

Why do I wait for you?

Your face brings me such warmth.

Cast between these furrows

I am king

But I humble in your dawn

I hold on to your sunlight

For as long as your light will hold

Or until your light is played out

Or until we both grow old.

 This is the very heart beat of this brilliant poem.. I do hope you find the woman of your dreams it will all be worth the wait..

The whole write was great work, but I especially liked the last several, say six lines. Until your light is played out, or until we both grow old. Lovely sentimental thinking here. I also liked the scrarecrow title, and the part about straw to feed the dreams of friends...
Make some of that straw work for you..may your own come true.
Nice piece.
